Sisolak’s full assertion reads:
I’ve requested District Attorney Wolfson not to pursue prosecution that might come up from the abusive and menacing remedy my household and I skilled at a neighborhood restaurant a number of weeks in the past.
As a husband, I’m outraged at the ethnic slurs and threats aimed at my spouse. As a father, I can not overlook or forgive the vulgar and foul language hurled at my daughter.
However, as Governor of this nice State, I really feel an obligation to keep away from additional fueling, and at worst, glorifying the anger and violence plaguing our nation and our State. A trial, ought to it happen, would trigger additional protection, and supply this small minority of Nevadans extra alternative to spew their vile.
I ask our associates within the media to pay extra consideration to the hundreds of acts of kindness and the charitable actions of our many kindhearted Nevadans, and to resist the temptation to air, publish or print the few vulgar and disgusting acts of a handful. Our youngsters are taught, of their colleges and church buildings, to be type, we ought to be extra centered to mirror that in our properties.
To follow what I preach, this assertion stands as my remaining remark about this horrible incident.

The man requested why Sisolak was out in public with out safety earlier than a second man joined in insulting him, and the governor and his spouse left the restaurant. The two males exited behind them and continued to shout insults, suggesting he ought to be hanged, video confirmed.
